  3. Is 3rd place such a bad thing?

Hypothetically if PS4 sold 100 million, Microsoft sold 50 million and Wii U sold 30 million, is that so terrible if Nintendo profited in the end? The race for second place seems like more of a pissing contest to me...

I feel profit is more important. Though it looks bad for the company who was in last place, both internally and externally (the consumer)

No, but the Wii U has been on track to sell 15-18M units in a lifetime., which is a very bad thing. If you adjust for the expansion of the market, that's about as well the Dreamcast or Genesis would have sold if they were around today.

It'd probably be unfortunate for Nintendo. Historically, I don't think most people who bought the system would care.

The whole "race" period is the biggest steaming pile of feces ever created. It's the single most juvenile, pedantic piece of **** to grace our hobby.

Yet it's the best diversion the industry could have implemented to keep "gamers" away from thinking about how anti-them the industry has become.

For a fanboy like you, I would say yes.
Xbox fanboys were the worst last gen, this gen I can't decide which fanboys are the worst, Nintendo or PC ones?

Seemed appropriate.
Though everything is awesome.

I am proud to be a Nintendo fan. At least I am not as ignorant as others who are brand loyal, and think there is nothing worth playing outside of their console of choice.
